Edinburgh Castle is a frequently besieged fortress that towers over the city, and is home to the oldest British crown jewels and the National War Museum. The Baroque Holyrood Palace lies on the other end of Royal Mile and is said to be the favorite residence of Queens Victoria and Elizabeth II.
Your bus routes will also take you out to Leith, where you can see another of Scotland's favorite visitor attractions: the luxurious Royal Yacht Britannia. This elegant vessel was the at-sea home of the British Royal family for 44 years.

If you're early enough, there's a great view of the firing of the One O’Clock Gun from the tower of Edinburgh Castle that overlooks the battery of Mount Mills. Watch (and hear) a tradition that goes all the way back to 1861.
The guides on each bus we used were great, giving a wonderful insight to the history of the city as you travelled around. Highly recommended and a must do, to experience.
